Good morning, first time posting, I have a Rollerteam 707 with a flashing red light on s3 on the control panel, does anyone know what this is? The S1 is for fresh water and the S2 is for wastewater.

Given the current freezing weather conditions has the van been winterised [ i, e, fully drained down ] or is there water still in the systems?

Hi Mike, I loaned the vehicle to a friend who assured me he had emptied the tanks, the vehicles main battery now seems to be dead as the central locking would not work off the key fob and vehicle would not start, could this have anything to do with it?

So a multiple of issues. Start [ no pun intended] with the starter battery. Have you a multimeter to see what the state of charge of the starter battery is now? Have you a good charger to recharge the starter battery? How old is the starter battery? It may well be time for a new one.
Has something been left switched on while the vans been stood up, 12v supply? Is there any solar input, or hook up to it ?
Mike.

Starter battery seems flat and needs urgent recharging, possibly replacement.

A good preventative measure in future is not to lend it to anyone. I certainly wouldn't.

So are we saying the S3 light is relating to the electrical system then? I will get the vehicle started and then go from there, yes I have a multimeter to test the main vehicle battery and the leisure one, but with it being parked 15 miles away from home I can't leave a battery charger on as no facility available on the site.

Might be an idea to unhook starter battery for now if you're unable to get a charger to it , trying to do any repairs in this weather is hellish.

Depending on the state of discharge, a Noco type of battery booster may work, but I suspect from your comments the starter battery is goosed. A multi meter reading of all battery's standing volts is a good place to start.

there is a solar panel on the roof of the vehicle but not sure if it links into the panel above the door as it seems to have its own independent panel with a couple of usb ports in it.

Since 2008 & many years tugging
, I loaned the vehicle to a friend
That was the first big mistake. :rofl:

As said sounds like the starter battery is dead.
As for the drain down have you checked that it's been properly drained down and the mixer tap left open in the central position?
A lot of people end up with broken taps as they have not been left in the central position.

No " battery master" fitted ? If not then the starter battery has been drained, probably to a level it may not recover from.
How difficult is access to the starter battery for removal, as it sounds like you may well have hoik that out?
Getting the van started is probably the best starting place, once mobile other options open up.
What size battery is in your other vehicle? You maybe able to jump assist the vans battery, but that to can lead to issues if not done correctly!!

sorry not sure what a battery master is? I've got a 2.0tdi Passat and the motorhome is a 2.3 diesel Fiat Ducato Rollerteam 707, going to try and get it started and then I can possibly check the water levels in the tanks but would be good to find out what the S3 on the control panel relates too.

Hopefully, others familiar with Roller Teams can help with that.
I tried lots of permutations of google search for "S3" but nothing useful was flagged up.
Battery master,this is a one way electrical current flow switch allowing your leisure batteries keep the starter battery charged, usefull with a solar panel that only replenishes the leisure batteries. Fingers crossed the S3 fault is just a low starting battery warning, and nothing more expensive.
